accept returning to the clinton rate of 39.6% or would you accept something perhaps a midpoint, 37% or starting with people who made $500,000 rather than 250? >> chris, there's a growing group of folks that are looking at this and realizing we don't have a lot of cards as a relates to the tax issue before year end. we have one house, that's it. the presidency and the senate's in the democrats' hands. i think it has merit, you give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the rate increase on the top 2%. and all of a sudden the shift goes back to entitlements. all of a sudden once you give him the rate on the top 2% it's actually lesser tax increases than what he's been talking about. the focus then shifts to entitlements and puts us in a place where we can do something that really saves this nation. so there's a growing body. i'm beginning to believe that's the best route to take to shift the focus where it needs to be, which is on entitlements. still, chris, the top 1% in our country taking 17% of the income and paying 37% of the taxes that are paid i hope will take
